Hartford, CT October 15, 2013: More than 125 women professionals from the greater Hartford area assembled on the evening of October 10 at Pullman & Comley's 2013 Women's Tea held at the Wadsworth Atheneum. Now in its third year in Hartford, the event sponsored by Pullman & Comley's Women's Leadership Initiative provides an opportunity for women professionals from the business, nonprofit and public sector to network while also supporting the work of a local nonprofit organization.
This year's event highlighted the work of the Connecticut Women's Education and Legal Fund (CWEALF), which has worked to advance women's rights and opportunities in Connecticut since 1973. Through their three key programs of legal education, public policy and advocacy, and research and evaluation, CWEALF initiates services to educate and empower women and girls to ensure they have the tools, knowledge and avenues to reach their goals. As one of the oldest women's rights organizations in the country, CWEALF is a vital resource to women and policy makers in Connecticut.
